Quieter Exhaust

I just bought my 2000 F-250 a few months ago and want to start with the upgrading of parts. I want a performance exhaust system, but as odd as it might sound, I want the addition of power and the engine to breath better without the truck getting too much louder, if any. Possibly even quieting the exhaust tone. I think that since it's a diesel it might be a little tough to do, just curious if anyone knows where to get an exhaust or muffler to do this?

It won't get any quieter than the stock muffler. But, a performance exhaust with a large (long) flow through muffler shouldn't be too noisy. HPX mod will quiet down the injectors some. I say that, because my girlfriend noticed it was quieter.

Yeah i went with a straight thru flowing muffler with my turbo back 4" exhaust and its alot quieter than my straight pipe stock setup was, much happier with it. Either diamond eye, alligator performance, or even if you wanna spend alil more. Maybe MBRP or Silverline. Totally up to you,

I strive to make my truck as loud as possible so when driving up north in the winter with the windows up, I can't hear her talking.

How about the Hushpower Pro Series Muffler? Anyone ever use it or know someone who has?

If you are interested, i have prob a year old STAINLESS steel muffler that was installed on my truck prob a year ago. After i bought it i wanted it removed. The truck was pretty quiet before. Its about a year old, but it is stainless steel so it is still shiny and looks brand new pretty well. Except for some black smog inside it just from it being installed.

Either order up a diamond eye exhaust or maybe alligator performance kit, thats bout the two cheaper kits out there. Good quality fitment and good sound. I really dont know of anything else that would make it any quieter than stock. I dont think that can actually happen. Diesels need to breathe, backpressure is a bad thing in a diesel truck. More restriction= less power

Yeah, that's what I pretty much figured. Oh well, I'd rather tow a semi out of the ditch that be considerate with my noise pollution. Thanks for the advice guys.

I used an MBRP stainless turbo back with a Magnaflow 7" x 30" straight through with the rear tip left 4" (no 5" flare or exit pipe), angled toward the rear passenger corner, level and even with the bumper. It is not that loud at all, perfect in my opinion.
